I bought a ProMag hi-cap magazine for my wife's Sig P228 during the last AWB and it was utter garbage from day one. OTOH, I have three ProMag 10-rounders for my Para-Ordnance P14 that function flawlessly. I guess even a broken clock is right twice a day.

But I agree with others that as a general rule, the only decent after-market pistol magazines (other than for 1911s) are Mec-Gar. Otherwise stick to factory mags.

This thread reminds me of some thing my HVAC instructor would always say when he would talk to us about buying our tools. He is hard worker who came to the states from the USSR. In a think Russian accent he would say "in Russia we are to poor to buy cheap."

My intended use was for range time but if the product is that bad why save $10 to throw away $20?

That is excellent advice.

Back during the last ban Glock magazines were running about 80 bucks used for my gun of choice.

Midway had some Promag 17 round preban magazines for the Glock 17. They were full metal lined, and polymer on the outside. They cost about 30 bucks a piece.

I bought four of them and couldn't get a single one to function reliably. Four new Glock followers were ordered at about about 3 bucks a piece. Still no joy.... Then extra power Wolff springs were ordered, and about 8 bucks a piece.

I had about 164 bucks wrapped up in these pieces of crap, that I could have just bought a couple factory full cap magazines that worked.


After the ban ended I started buying magazines in spades.
I will never waste money on cheap junk again.
